US President calls for assault-weapons Ban after Nashville shooting

KABUL (BNA) After six people, including three children, were killed in a school shooting in Nashville, Tennessee on Monday, the U.S. President Joe Biden called on Congress to pass an assault weapons ban, the White House said.

“We have to do more to stop gun violence. It’s ripping our communities apart,” Biden said at the White House. “I call on Congress again to pass my assault weapons ban.”

The Nashville shooter, a 28-year-old who was fatally shot by officers at the scene, had at least two semi-automatic rifles and a handgun, police said initially.

Police later said the shooter had one semi-automatic rifle and two handguns.
